July 11th: Cadbury Dairy Milk Olympic Editions: Silvery Creme

Today we have the continuation of my Cadbury Dairy Milk Olympic Editions reviews with the silver medalist 'Silvery Creme' bar. Be sure to let me know what you think about these new chocolates you see this week. You can get in touch with me on the ChocolateMission twitter stream - @ChocMission where you can also catch the competition I will be running.

I will be keeping the review of this one rather short for reasons that will soon become obvious. It came described as 'Milk chocolate with a vanilla flavour filling' - sounds a little familiar huh!? Yes ladies and gentlemen this was a classic repackage and relabel offering. Admittedly I haven't seen this bar in the wild for what it seems like forever, but ultimately this was the Cadbury Dairy Milk Bliss in a different wrapper, albeit larger sized.

I may be sounding mega cynical at this point so I will at least say aesthetically this Silvery Creme offering was a more attractive looking bar that the Bronzed Creme Crunch that I featured yesterday. The middle filling was glistening white in colour and just looked easier on the eye than the dirty looking Monday feature. Taste wise you wont be surprise to hear that all tasted rather familiar. The Dairy Milk was all I expected with it's creamy sweet cocoa flavours and heavy longing smooth melt. The light, silky textured filling wasn't all that strong in fllavour, but it had enhanced the taste with a minor note of natural vanilla and added creamyness. Altogether fair tasting and moreish - just unexciting and by no means anything new.

Overall as far as flavoured Dairy Milk chocolates go this was a pretty good one but I still feel disappointed with it. Sorry to not sound as enthusiastic as perhaps I should but I was hoping for more from these new bars and so far I haven't got that - especially from this Cadbury Dairy Milk Bliss (See HERE) mark II. I can't deny this wasn't a good chocolate, but I feel a little aggrieved that they simply took that bar, put it in a new wrapper and then stuck on the words 'Limited Edition' - thats just a little cheeky for me. So far we've had one not so good chocolate and another one that was simply repackage job. Will the gold medal prospect deliver the goods!? Find out Friday!!
